Floral Frenzy Peek

Welcome back for day two of the Little Paper Shops May release peeks!! Today I have a peek at the fabulous new Floral Frenzy set. Before I talk about my card though, here is all the need to know info about the exciting things going on at the Little Paper Shop!!

"Jen Tapler and Susanna Boyd have been hard at work organizing "Stamping Out Alzheimer's": an amazing event that you won't want to miss!! For a mere $5 donation you will have access to exclusive challenges and fun prizes from numerous different companies. And the best part..... 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Alzheimer's Association!

Little Paper Shop is hosting a sketch challenge on the Stampin' out Alzheimer's forum and would love for you to join us. At the end of the event we will be drawing one name from all the entries to win 4 - 4x6 stamp sets. That's over $60 in value! But the only way to enter is on the Stampin' out Alzheimer's forum! Hope to see you there!"

For my card today, I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try from this past Saturday. I stamped all three flowers separately. I stamped the dark red with Riding Hood Red, and the two lighter with Pink Pirouette. I then stamped the darker outline with Bravo Burgundy and the lighter with Riding Hood Red. I cut all three out and attached to a Gina K. White oval that had been cut out with my Oval Nesties and Cuttlebug. The leaves were stamped before attaching them with Kiwi Kiss. To add some highlights, I went in with my Copics and added some shading. The DP is from the Bella Rose pack from SU. I paired it with Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red paper. My accessories are from SU and the sentiment was punched out using SU punches.

Today is also time for another Little Paper Shop blog challenge. Today's challenge is a color challenge to use Perfect and Pale Plum and Pretty In Pink. I had every intention of doing a card using the new Floral set with this combo, but things don't always go the way I plan!! I made this card a few weeks ago forgetting that I would have a new set to use, and since it is WAY to cute not to share, I decided to go ahead and share it today!! It was made using a Weekend Sketch Challenge from a couple of weeks ago. I used my Katie Mushroom image, and paired it with a sentiment from
the Topiary set. All my accessories are from SU as well as the sentiment punches. I colored the image with my Copics. Wanna play along?
